‘Do the Right Thing’ screening with Anya at Holy Mountain. “The Reelness,” a new music and movies series curated by Austin Mic Exchange and Weird City Hip-hop Festival co-founder Adam “P-Tek” Protextor, kicks off with the Spike Lee classic, preceded by a short set from rapidly rising emcee Anya with DJ Hardtopronounce. Protextor says he picked the movie because “its climactic scene and themes have been referenced a lot lately in the wake of the Baltimore protests.” Donations for the ACLU will be collected at the event. Free. 9 p.m. 617 E. Seventh St. holymountainaustin.com. — D.S.S.

Also: The Mohawk rocks indoors with Modrag, Stellatone and Alien Knife Fight. … Anthony Ray Wright brings his country-bluegrass songs to Hotel Vegas with Kiel Grove. … Singer-songwriter Graham Weber plays North Austin bar the Tigress to celebrate its 5th anniversary. … Remember some of the city’s long-running Monday residencies: Lonelyland at the Saxon Pub, Dale Watson at the Continental Club and Church on Monday at the Continental Gallery.
